government is going to do, like roads and bridges, and now we're in the middle after hurricane sandy like fema. and i think dean is a very interesting question that befuddles me because it started with jimmy carter, one of jimmy carter's, numbered bureaucratic innovations was fema. and reagan did was take it scarce and did we take it certificate didn't staff it with professional. then in 92 bush senior got burned with a response to hurricane andrew in florida. and clinton wrote in his autobiography, i made a mental note at the time, i'm not going to get elected because of my disaster management record but i could sure lose this job i'll make darshan going to hire a pro that will really with fema into shape, which he did. and then bush junior comes in the. he has a government agency after eight years, which everybody likes. no one is mad at fema in 2000. and then bush, for nobody is reason to me, besides forget it, let's start privatizing functions again. let's put and political cronies again. let's go back to the old way. and he got burned. and so obama comes back and put in a pro. people

't a conservative say, this works? legitimate question, especially in the aftermath of sandy. we had an article in "the new york times" that big storms require big government. i have a brother there right now who weathered out the storm. he has his own generator. he is not a survivalist. he's a pilot with delta air lines, who ordinarily tells me, you are an idiot libertarian. anybody who does not vote for obama is a racist, etc. in the last couple of days, he has been ranting about how nobody is allowed back on the island. all of the people who evacuated -- this is a great example of setting up perverse incentives. next time, when they tell you to evacuate, you would be a fool to do so, because it has shown after half a week, they are not letting anybody back on the island. he is ranting. the government needs to get out of our way, let people back on the island. who is better at bringing themselves back from a disaster than the people who actually live there and have homes there and operate businesses there? the jury is out on sandy and thethe governor of new jersey is in a fight with the mayor
was affected by hurricane sandy. how much money do you think new york and new jersey can actually hope to get from washington to help recover? >> i think it is too early to venture a guess as to how much money. we'll see. clearly a large amount of money is needed. one interesting fact that i don't think has been mentioned is that fema has in its current budget in its current account which doesn't need replenishment from congress about $6 billion. all of which it could spend on new york and new jersey and connecticut. and that would exhaust its funds for the year. it would then have to come back to congress either for more funds but also because there will be other natural disasters there will be tornadoes in the midwest, flooding somewhere else an earthquake. and for any of that, to have any money, they're going to have to come back to congress. not simply for the new york/new jersey tri-state area. >> eliot: i hate to say it is a good thing but it means there will be a larger political coalition that will be supporti
. government says that hurricane sandy had a big role in that. that could very well be. it also led to reduced wages in the month of october. a lot of construction people along those lines could not work in the middle of all this. there will be work for them when this starts to rebuild which is some sort of silver lining there. the storm affected dozens of states with the most severe damage happening in new york and in new jersey. bill: looking to see bulldozers in some of those neighborhoods unfortunately. >>> new tension in the middle east. this is cairo, egypt. this is the scene in tahrir square and almost nightfall. look at the crowd that has gathered after lawmakers approve a new constitution threatening to inflame already tense situation between the opposition and the heart-line government. steve hair gan streaming -- harrigan, streaming live in cairo, egypt the constitution already written. coming under sharp criticism. what do we know about it, steve? >> reporter: it is being criticized by opponents of this government. first of all people say it is a rush job. they basically pulled an
failure to abide by the rules. i want to make it abundantly clear we are in the same situation. sandy and i was a "profile in courage" almost to support china and we have consistently supported our position as most people are supporting the committee's position and the congress position as relates to allowing russia to assume the responsibilities of joining the w.t.o.. and while we have no guarantees that she will abide by the rules, at least we do have she recognizes that they are international rules. and for those people that are just monitoring the behavior of the people's republic of china, we have to realize that in order to get people to cooperate and to find some discipline in international trade, they have to join. and this goes a long way in making certain that only that we create the jobs and improve commercial trade with russia, but also it encourages the administration now to see what works for the great united states, what really works improve the quality of trade between all nations, and gives us another tool to work with. so i want to thank sandy and the chairman of the
